Water Pressure Loss Through Piping

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

formula

\(p_l = \frac { \mu \; \cdot \;  l  \; \cdot \;  {v_w}^2 \; \cdot \; \rho  \; \cdot \; SG    }   { 2d } \)

Where:

\(p_l\) = pressure loss of water through piping

\(\mu\) (Greek symbol mu) = friction coefficient

\(l\) = pipe length

\(v_w\) = velocity of water through piping

\(\rho\) (Greek symbol rho) = density of water

\(SG\) = specific gravity of water

\(d\) = pipe inner diameter
